eek. i'm back. down in north carolina for a few days, trying to get some work done while i'm down here. Staying in a motel room wiht new furnishings, we walked in and immediately started sneezing and hacking. They're going to bring the ozone machine up and see if that'll help dissipate the noxious fumes. Figure it's the carpet, as the only room that doesn't make one ill is the bathroom---go figure. (no carpet in there!)

I was very cross by the time i made it here---construction and accidents slowed down my usually takes 6.5 hrs, took 8-plus yesterday.

and i forgot the vermouth! It's hard to have a martini party without it.

no, this is not an april fool----it really is me, trying to get back into the swing of random chattering.
I feel this last swing through austin finally did me in---since returning, my allergies have been in full bloom, and I've felt a wreck. But one must soldier on.....

We're having a very cool spring, or at least the days I've been home have been cool. And rainy. Which brings me to this photo, taken yesterday afternoon.

Or maybe I should say "evening." I think I took that a few minutes before 6pm. Shot on the iphone, which could explain some of the color variations. That, or the light was just weird.
